How 'bout a beer?!

I made this cake was made for a friend of ours, who was celebrating his birthday this weekend - with beer and brat's!   This "beer mug" cake was made from 4 - 6" round cakes, torted and filled with vanilla buttercream and starwberry preserves.  Then covered in fondant and airbrushed for color.  The foam on top, was simply buttercream.  The idea came from a cake I found on  the "Cake Girls" website (www.thecakegirls.com) - I think it came out pretty good!  The sausage was made rice cereal treats and  covered in fondant.  Pretzels were made out of fondant, and sugar crystals were used for salt.   Fun cake to do! 
Cheers Michael!!
